Can I switch the skybox/light of a map so it seems like it's in the morning?
I'm currently doing a video on ctf_2fort, and I was wondering if it's possible to change the skybox and the light so it's the morning. Must I download a map? If so, which one?

I find that "sky_well_01", with a "Color Balance" of 0,-12,-55 in the midtones, maybe slightly reduced tonemapscale on the camera, looks pretty nice on 2fort.

There's a very handy guide on how to remove lighting yourself from maps
